Love this café and I go every time I am in town. It is like a warm cosy hideaway and while the food and coffee are not spectacular it is perfect for a cosy coffee and sambo and I love the artsy vibe. My grievance with Simon's is it is actually CLOSED a lot - including on Sundays and most... More

I come here all the time and I love it! I always get the same thing, chicken sandwich and a cup of tea, comes to just over 6 quid and is always delicious! They make their own bread fresh everyday and it's just the best samba ever. What I also like about Simons Place other then the value is the... More

I nipped in here when I had a while to wait for a bus. It's actually deceptively big, there's lots of seating downstairs that I didn't know was there until I asked where the toilet was. Upstairs (where you walk in) is mostly counter seating, a bit uncomfortable. I ordered a coffee and reluctantly a sandwich, I was hungry but... More

On a recent visit to Dublin, I called in here on a busy Saturday afternoon. The place was nearly full , but I was served very efficiently with a smile. Nice coffee and brownie, in a relaxed and 'cool' environment. And there was also a lot of reading material (newspapers and magazines), which is my favourite part of a cheeky... More

Best sandwiches in Dublin- try the avocado if they have any left and love the mushroom salad. The staff are lovely and the cafe itself is really comfy - don't forget there's more seating downstairs as it took me years to discover this!

Called in here for lunch on Easter Tuesday with my wife. The menu is simple and the food is excellent. The sandwiches are delicious and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back.

I went there several time already when I want to have a coffee and cakes or to have lunch with my family and I highly recommend it. The staff is always nice with you, always smiling, never rushing. I just love the salad they prepare and for a choice of three salad for 5.95€ they are really generous and you're... More
